Beijing Angered Over Australia’s Ban on Huawei from Mobile Network Project
China had reportedly taken offense over Australia’s banning of Huawei from supplying equipment for a 5G network project. The move was dismissed by Beijing as an excuse to put the Chinese telecoms giant at a disadvantage.
Australia meanwhile said that following the advice of security experts, it is choosing not to work with the company due to possible risks of foreign interference.
Huawei was already previously banned by Australia from working on a Pacific undersea fiber-optic network project, further increasing tensions between the two countries.
